Could not find schema information for the element 'http://schemas.microsoft.com/.NetConfiguration/v2.0:configuration'.
The answer seems pertinent, that the IIS is not using .net v2, but I see no IIS Manager anywhere in order to change that. I am using XP Professional. I am sure IIS is on this machine somewhere but I know fo no "IIS Manager" front end.
I have read through some of your posts, and you have been very helpful to others, and thanks for your response to this. Hopefully my questions aren't too dumb! :)
I tried what you said - I had already looked at the admin tools and it isn't there! I then tried inetmgr as you suggested, from Run, and it says it can't be found. This is most confusing to me since I have a web app that I am trying to develop and it does actually run, at least in debug mode within the development environment. FYI I am using the MS Visual Web Developer 2005 Express - freeware, as that is what my current budget will allow. :)
When my web app is running, I see this on my taskbar:
asp.net development server - port 2565
So maybe it doesn't use IIS? But I thought a local IIS was installed with XP Pro? Certainly I have the .Net framework. I see this in my admin tools window: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration
Any help appreciated. I am out of my depth here. I have been a programmer in past but am out of touch.
IIS does indeed come with Windows XP, but it's not installed by default. When inetmgr gives you a "not found" message, there's a fair chance it's not installed. To fix that you need to do two things: install IIS and then reconfigure the .NET Framework so it registers itself with IIS.
1. Open the Add/Remove programs section of the control panel and choose Add / Remove Windows Components. From the dialog that follow, install IIS. You may need to reboot.
2. Open up a command prompt and navigate to:
Type the following command at the command prompt:
Wait a bit while the tool registers ASP.NET with IIS
From here, things should work as expected when it comes to IIS.
Will do and thanks for your help to this point - you got me started. BTW I do have MS VS 2005 installed but I can't get past this error? While I have your attention... you seem knowledgeable so maybe you know about this:
"The application for ...is not installed." I don't know what it thinks is not installed? This error occurs for several web apps that I can open and run just fine in the freeware Web Developer app but I understand it is limited and I am better in VS 2005.
I wouldn't be such a pest if I knew where to go for some better general overview info. Somehow you never see these install / compatibility issues covered in books.
